  • Started home brewing about two years ago (2/5/2010) with a friend. It turned out all the friend wanted for me to buy everything an invest no time so he could tell people he brewed beer. So I stopped brewing for a while. Did a couple batches here and there. Moved into all grain about a year after my first brew and have been enjoying it more since then. Mostly use the biab method as I live in an apartment.

    Just got my first kegs and my roommate into brewing about the same time. A little worried the apartment may run out of room soon due to brewing stuff. haha.

    This sounds like if you just cover the top of the bucket it would still trap air pocket between
    the brew and plastic.unless the bucket was completely full. My problem is the air inbetween the
    lid and ...

    I did something like this with a smaller 2 gallon bucket on an experimental beer I made a few
    weeks ago. I put plastic wrap over the top and took a longer bit to use kind of like a rope
    around to hold...

    Why? Whats the advantage of doing a solera with sacc beers?A solera really seems to come into
    it's own if you do Lambic or Flanders style beers (wild brews). It is a long-term investment

    might encourge ...

    this and d...

    From what I've read about things like this happening, the yeast could be a little stressed or
    slowed down in converting sugars. If you are going to bottle condition you may want to add a
    little more o...
